Plan International started working in Ecuador in 1963, in the slum areas of the City of Guayaquil. Today, more than 400,000 children participate in our projects across Azuay, Cañar, Guayas, Bolívar, Manabí, Chimborazo, Cotopaxi, Loja, Los Ríos and Pichincha provinces.
We work in 1,000 communities, promoting rights and a decent life for children and their families.
Our main target groups are children and teenagers who live in situations of inequality and vulnerability, and whose rights are infringed, as well as workers with disabilities and other groups in need of special protection.
